8 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

The oregano colors this pork slightly green--and gives it great flavor. If you grind dried oregano leaves in a spice grinder, the color is less green. Slice the remaining guava paste, and serve it as an appetizer with queso fresco cheese and crackers.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare pork, combine oregano, oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add pork; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Thread pork and onion alternately onto 16 (8-inch) skewers.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 14 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Arrange skewers on a platter; keep warm.

Step 4

To prepare sauce, combine guava paste and the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook 8 minutes or until smooth, stirring constantly. Serve sauce with pork.

I can't believe that I never rated this recipe. I have made it several times in the past few years and am planning to make it for our 4th of July cookout. It is soooo good!
